Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s a cardinal curly hair rule: work with your strands, not against them. Miss Jessie’s® makes that easy with this weightless styling cream, which enhances hair’s natural bounce and shape without any heaviness. Whether your hair is naturally kinky, curly, or wavy, the moisturizing formula does away with frizz and dryness. And since it’s packed full of moisturizing botanicals, it doubles as a rescue treatment for fried and over-processed hair.

How it Works

This light-as-air cream gets to work immediately, sealing in hydration and adding shine, while also softening and strengthening each strand. The secret to the formula is its winning combo of plant extracts, including grape seed, lavender, and chestnut. You can thank an infusion of ginger flower and lime for the fresh, sweet scent.

How to Use

Apply a tablespoon or so of the cream to damp hair, section by section. Don’t rinse out. Air dry your hair, or use a blow dryer with a diffuser for extra volume. Marvel at the amazing results.

Pretty good
SampledPurchased

Overall I like this. It helps my curls to lay nice and doesn't leave my hair crunchy. The only thing I'd say negative is the smell, it's kind of intense (like laundry detergent on steroids). I've gotten used to it, so it doesn't really bother me anymore, but the first couple of times it was really strong.

great product

This a great product. My only complaint is that it is kind of pricey and it smells like cleaning products. I always use a good-smellling prodcut with it to mask the smell I dislike.

All-time Favorite!
Purchased

Some girls with curly hair think they hate their hair, but really, they just hate their hair PRODUCTS. This curl creme is the most amazing hair product I have ever used, and the best thing is that it makes me love my curls! I apply it to damp hair at night and then in the morning I literally just shake it out a bit and walk out the door. Your hair will not be frizzy at all, and your natural curl shape will come through. It is not sticky or crunchy at all, but your curls will be nice and soft and shaped. I got my mom hooked on it too--it's the bomb!

Not so quick or curly
Sampled

this product was not helpful for me...it left my hair heavy, flat, and chunky. Not the least bit curly...it actually reduced my typical curl.

Not my first choice
Purchased

As we with curls know, heavy product equals loose curls. It was particularly thick and my curls were stretched out. It did leave my hair soft though, that's a plus.

quick curls

This product had an unpleasant odor and made my hair crunchy. The packaging also made it difficult to keep and use again. Needed to come in a tube, not a non-resealable packet.

Curly Hair Rejoice!

Miss Jessie's knows curly hair. I have fine, curly hair and I am constantly on the look out for products that hold curl, control frizz and don't make my hair look greasy. Quick Curls does exactly that! I am on my 3rd bottle and love everything about it - there is hold, frizz control and it doesn't leave hair stiff. I must try for all curly hair girls!

This is an excellent product. I have been looking for a new product to replace a discontinued favorite. I think I have found it. This does not weigh my hair down or leave it feeling like I have product in it. I keeps hair soft but still holds my style.
The only thing is it is a little pricey , but I think it's worth it.
